The various end-of-year 8th grade activities cost over $8,000 which is primarily paid for by parents and students with help from the PTO. Some of the major costs include hiring buses to transport hundreds of 8th graders and teachers to/from the picnic site, securing venues, printing programs and tickets, and purchasing food. To help pay for these much-loved traditional events, we are asking each 8th grade family to donate $40 (or any amount that you are comfortable with) to the 8th Grade Activities Fund. If you can donate more to help cover those families not able to contribute that would be much appreciated.  Note there will be an additional cost for those students interested in participating in the 8th grade dinner dance.
